An alleged Abu Sayyaf bomb expert involved in an audacious attack at the House of Representatives that killed seven people in 2007, including a congressman, has been arrested in a raid in the southern Philippines, police said Friday.
The suspect, identified as Kahar Indama (also known as Khang), is a relative of Furuji Indama, the Abu Sayyaf’s leader on Basilan Island, regional police chief Brig. Gen. Jesus Cambay Jr. said.
Backed by troops from a marine battalion, the police captured Indama late Thursday while raiding his safehouse in Sangali, a village located just a few meters from a local police station in Zamboanga city, officials said.
